It is 15:30 universal time. I'm Steve Ember in Washington.

Libya's opposition is offering more than 1,600,000 dollars for the capture of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi. The head of the Transitional National Council said his group supports a decision by local businessmen to provide the money in an effort to speed up the capture. The offer came as more fighting was reported at the Libyan leader's headquarters in Tripoli. His supporters fought gunbattles against Libyan rebel forces. It is not clear where Mr. Gadhafi has gone. On Tuesday, United States officials said they believe he is still in Libya.

World leaders are considering their next moves for relations with Libya. French diplomats said Wednesday their nation is working with its allies to develop a United Nations resolution. They said the resolution would free up money or property that had been restricted because of U.N. measures against Libya. British officials also said Wednesday they are exploring ways to help Libya if the country is no longer under the control of Moammar Gadhafi.

Officials in Yemen say the military has killed at least 30 suspected militants linked to al-Qaida. Military and medical officials reported Wednesday that seven soldiers were also killed during clashes in the country's south. Militants have taken control of several areas in the south during the 6-month of protest against Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh. Mr. Saleh remains in Saudi Arabia where he is recovering from an attack on his headquarters.

Human rights groups say Syrian security forces are again raiding towns and villages throughout the nation. The security forces are arresting suspected opponents of the government of President Bashar al-Assad. Syria's government-operated SANA news agency showed images of what it described as victims of an attack by "armed terrorist groups" in Homs. It said 14 citizens had been "kidnapped, tortured and killed" by gunmen in the city.

A Russian official says North Korean leader Kim Jong Il is ready to temporarily halt his nation's nuclear weapons program if international talks on the program continue. Natalya Timakova said Mr. Kim made the offer during a meeting with President Dmitry Medvedev Wednesday at a military base in Siberia. Ms. Timakova is a spokeswoman for Mr. Medvedev. She said the North Korean leader offered to return to the six-nation talks without conditions. South Korea and the United States have urged North Korea to suspend work on its nuclear program before the talks are restarted.

A satellite imagery group says it has new evidence of many bodies being buried together in Sudan's Southern Kordofan state. The Satellite Sentinel Project said images from space showed two new mass burial areas, increasing the number to eight. The group is accusing the Sudanese Red Crescent Society of preparing the burial areas and filling them with human remains. The group's evidence includes satellite images, witness reports and Red Crescent statements. Sudanese officials deny the claims. They say there is no proof of mass graves in Southern Kordofan.

You're listening to the news in VOA Special English.

United Nations officials say special representative Tomas Quintana spoke with political prisoners at Burma's Insein Prison on Wednesday. A U.N. spokesman told VOA's Burmese service that Mr. Quintana was permitted to speak to all the political prisoners he asked for by name. Spokesman Aye Win said the diplomat also visited the hospital and another building at the prison. Insein is believed to hold many of the 2000 Burmese political prisoners. Later Wednesday, Mr. Quintana met privately with Nobel peace prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi. He described the meeting as very productive. He also met with top officials of her party.

A human rights group is urging Bangladesh to stop its officials from abusing detainees and other crimes. Amnesty International said Bangladesh's government must act now to protect people from unlawful killings. It accused the Rapid Action Battalion of an involvement in hundreds of killings and using torture against detainees. Amnesty's researcher in Bangladesh says the group shoots someone nearly every week. He said government officials often state that the person was killed in a "gun-fight" or "crossfire."

Japan officially protested to China Wednesday after two Chinese patrol boats entered what Japan considers its territorial waters in the East China Sea. Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano said Japan ordered a meeting with the Chinese ambassador in Tokyo to discuss the incident. The Chinese boats sailed near a number of disputed islands that Japan governs. The islands are known as Senkaku in Japan and Diaoyu in China.

Vice President Joe Biden ended his trip to Asia Wednesday. He thanked American soldiers and their families for helping the Japanese people after the earthquake and tsunami in March. Mr. Biden spoke to soldiers at the Yokota Air Base near Tokyo. He thank them for making America look as good as we are. United States forces took part in the huge American campaign to help Japan after the March disasters.

And China has developed guidelines so that its money can be used for foreign direct investment. Under the guidelines foreign investers would use yuan raised through cross-border trade settlements, overseas bonds or share sales. The Commerce Ministry is accepting public comments on the proposed rules until August 31. China has been permitting greater use of its money to lessen its dependence on the American dollar. China also wants to make the yuan more widely accepted in international business deals.

Briefly, here again is the major news of the hour.

Libya's opposition is offering more than 1 million dollars for the capture of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi. Officials in Yemen say the military has killed at least 30 suspected militants linked to al-Qaida. And a Russian official says North Korean leader Kim Jong Il is ready to temporarily halt his nation's nuclear weapons program if international talks on the program continue.

That's the news in VOA Special English, Steve Ember reporting.
